Ohio Memory, a product of the Ohio Historical Society and the State Library of Ohio Remarkable Ohio The Ohio House of Representatives Historical Manuscripts Commission - Organisations and Projects - Making History HMC Reading Room ┬ęTNA The Historical Manuscripts Commission (HMC, formally known as The Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts) was established in 1869, with a remit to survey and publish original records of 'Institutions and Private Families'. It thus performed a similar function with regard to private archives as the Public Record Office (PRO) did for official papers. Its publications of surveys and calendars were the major raw material for historians until the opening up of local depositories between the 1950s and 1970s, and the HMC also oversaw the maintenance of the National Register of Archives (NRA) from the latter's establishment in 1945. The HMC and the PRO merged to form The National Archives (TNA) in 2003.

The history of Ohio statehood, however, begins much earlier. One of the provisions in the Paris Peace Treaty ending the Revolutionary War was the establishment of boundaries that would allow for American expansion westward. This area became known as the Northwest Territory. In 1787, Congress passed the Northwest Ordinance to establish a government for the territory and to provide a method for admitting new states into the Union once the population had reached 60,000 inhabitants. In December 1801, the "Schedule of the Whole Number of Persons in the Territory North West of the Ohio" was transmitted to Congress accompanying a presidential message. The House Committee reported a bill enabling Ohio to form a constitution and state government and on April 9, 1802 the bill passed the House. Archives of Featured Documents
